Presentation of Val-d'Issoire

Val-d'Issoire (1,000 inhabitants in 2021; 7,160 ha) is a commune in the Haute-Vienne department.

The municipality was established on 1 January 2016 and consists of the former communes of Bussière-Boffy (300 inhabitants) and Mézières-sur-Issoire (800 inhabitants).
From September 1939 to the summer of 1940, Mézières-sur-Issoire (and also Vaulry and Saint-Martial-sur-Isop) welcomed the inhabitants (more than 1800) evacuated from the Alsatian town of Seltz, located on the banks of the Rhine. Mézières-sur-Issoire is twinned with Seltz and an avenue is named Avenue de Seltz.
